Happy Fabric

While perusing the internet looking at fabrics I came across this gorgeous print from Calico Corners in four lovely color variations. Not sure where I could use this fabric but, I will find a spot for it! It also helps that I am utterly in love with the Dahlias I bought for my garden and am happy to report are thriving even with my some what forgetful gardening skills.

Kitchen and bath shelf paper

When looking at my potential new apartment I noticed the inside of the cabinets were dark unfinished plywood. Ughh! There is nothing worse than dark cabinets with questionably clean interiors. But, the flikers of terrible shelf papers that came to mind when thinking of a solution seemed like almost as bad as the barren dark interior cabinets that currently stand.

Hmmm. So, while on the hunt for great looking shelf papers I found this company called "Chic Shelf Paper" and they live up to their name! Here are a few of my favorites and a link to the website. I would be happy to open up my cabinet doors to find any of these prints resting below my plates! Additionally, because they are vinyl they will always be a cinch to wipe up.

Coaster although, are meant as a pratical object can too be beautiful and add a touch of design to a coffee table or any surface where they lay.
